Teofimo Lopez Vs. George Kambosos Jr. Matchup Might Move Again, This Time To Avoid Monday Night Football
Just when fans thought the Teofimo Lopez-George Kambosos saga was over, Triller’s Ryan Kavanaugh “just realized” a potential conflict.
Kavanaugh said he’s trying to move the scheduled October 4 fight at the Hulu Theater to October 16 at Barclays Center to avoid a clash with the Oakland Raiders versus San Diego Chargers football game that evening.
If rescheduled, this is either the seventh or eighth time the bout has been moved.
Dan Rafael reported:
“Lopez’s team pushed back with lawyer letters to Triller over the issue.
Team Kambosos weighed in when its lawyer, Greg Smith, who also happens to be Canelo Alvarez’s attorney, wrote to IBF president Daryl Peoples and IBF attorney Linda Torres to also say they had no intention of allowing Kavanaugh to move the fight.”
Kambosos has already explained that being away from the family for such a long time is hard for him and rescheduling the fight dates time and again only extends his agony.
Once a deal was finally nearing after other multiple cancelled dates, it was initially announced that it would happen on October 5, but it was bumped up to October 4 to avoid possibility of a Yankees-Red Sox baseball playoffs game.
The dates this fight has gone through includes: May 29, June 19, August 14, September 11, October 17, October 5 and, now, potentially October 4.
IBF ruled Lopez-Kambosos must happen by October 17.
Triller won rights to the fight with a bid of $6.018 million back in February.
